Cellvizio advanced technology generates optical biopsies using the world’s smallest flexible microscope, providing clinicians with microscopic images of tissue instantaneously and in a minimally-invasive manner. Today Cellvizio is used in over 40 countries and 550 clinics worldwide.
This allows us to identify and treat cells changed due to acid reflux before they turn into cancer cells.
Who is a Candidate?
Do you suffer from chronic acid reflux? If so, then a Cellvizio may be the diagnostic tool that you need.
What is Cellvizio?
Is a device that is used for microscopy at a cellular level during standard endoscopy. Cellular morphology and tissue microarchitecture can be resolved in real-time, in addition to dynamic imaging of the normal and pathological vasculature.
What is the Treatment cost?
Costs vary depending on insurance status, length of procedure, resource use, and so on. Contact us for more information and visit the Pricing Page.
How is Cellvizio performed?
An area of interest is identified during an endoscopic procedure. A mini probe is then introduced in the working channel of an endoscope. Next, the mini probe appears on an endoscopic image and it is positioned in contact with your cells. Finally, a Cellvizio video is displayed in real-time.
When will I see the Results?
The images taken using the Cellvizio are sent to a database where the physician will review the results. A follow-up appointment will be scheduled with the physician to discuss the plan of action.
What are the Benefits of Cellvizio?
It is a minimally invasive procedure that can lead to facilities making better decisions in patient management for conditions such as Barrett’s Esophagus and other diseases of the esophagus and stomach.
What are Risks Associated?
It is a very safe procedure. Please let us know if you are allergic to fluorescein. Having bright green urine for a few hours after the procedure is common and does not need any treatment.
